And the forum has not gone down in flames!:rofl:

Awesome time with the wife and in-laws soaking up some sun, sand and surf. The weather was 27 and sunny every day with lows of 24 over night. It actually really surprised me how it didn't feel really hot down there, especially with coming from the frosty winter wonderland. The days were great with just a t, shorts, and sandals. At night, it almost wasn't warm enough which was a shock. Anyway, we toured around Punta Cana, did a 400 km, 8 hour tour in a Kia POS to Miches along the 104 (more of a goat trail until they finish the freeway, potholes, washouts, detours without direction), down to El Seibo, Higuey, back to Punta Cana. A word of warning to anyone that wants to do this, street signs are rare. Highway signs are rarer, there are no signs telling you how to get to the "highways" once you find the city and finding someone that speaks English happens, but should be relied upon. However, the island is absolutely beautiful. I would do the trip again but in a truck that can take a beating. (between Miches and El Seibo, the car was down to 15 km/h going up hill and I thought it was going to die!):rofl:

We stayed at the Palm Suits. Condo's with a common pool. It was AWESOME! I loved the pool. Great way to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather.

Some topless, tanning but nothing to write home about.

Found out Ford still makes the Ranger! Only blurry pics as there were peeps in the truck and they looked shady so i didn't want them thinking I was taking their picture.
